8E Phalanx - Revery [NTT015]
After being under construction for over 8 months, 8 artists from around the world have finally finished yet another xE Phalanx chapter, this time in a veritable David Lynch fashion.
Run time 51:52
Not only have they created a lengthy work (9 consecutive parts) that goes along quite well with the concept of "auditory movies", they have at the same time composed a soundtrack for it, and all this by using mainly self-recorded sounds as a source!
Everything was linked together like a chain of thoughts, which draws the listener to an uncomparable creative thinking experience. Much is left to the imagination, and the borders between real and surreal will fade by each listen.
As a whole, "Revery" is destined to raise some eyebrows.
Enormous thanks go out to acta, Chango Feo, Ellende, Erratic, Kaebin Yield, no Xivic, Plagasul and sig~int for all the hard work that they put into this, so please do an effort to check out their individual music as well because it is very much worth it!

Like listening in on someones dream (or nightmare)
Many netlabel artists seem to strive to recreate the dreamworld through sound, but this recording achieves what so many others fail. Lie down, close your eyes, and immerse yourself in the sound world that 8E Phalanx have sculpted. Genuinely disturbing in spots, constantly suprising and unpredictable.
Be forwarned though, this is not to be listened to. It's to be EXPERIENCED, a journey worth undertaking if one has the patience. I eagerly await the next installment.
